Thanks for supporting Thorndale students’ trip

Dear editor,

After a full year of planning and saving and fund raising, the seventh and eighth graders at St. Paul Lutheran School in Thorndale are a week away f rom landing in Washington D.C. for their class trip.

They will have 3 1/2 days of sightseeing and “life-seeing” as they are lead on an educational tour of our nation’s capital city.

Not only will they see first hand the monuments marking milestones in American history, they will also experience mass transportation on the subway, mixing with various cultures of people and, for some, make their first airplane trip.

None of this would have been possible without the total support of our communities.

Thank you to the people of Milam County for their attendance and support of all our fundraising efforts.

You have helped make this into a realization for 15 very excited young people.

Thank you

Cindy Melcher, Principal
